WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST
WELCOME BACK MY FRIEND
I trust you're taking just one step
If you try and build on top of something before the glue dries,
your project will not turn out very strong. We want it to be perfect!
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect
and entire, wanting nothing.
Today I have an exciting new project for you that
will help you remove your problem(s). If you have completed the Christianity Oasis Teen
Counseling Program, you have already learned about this in Step 6 ... Known as Miracle Grow. This
step is identical to Miracle Grow and it is strongly suggested that you read through this
Step Five of My Brother's Keeper just as carefully and even more determined, with eagerness
and desire to catch anything you may have missed and to renew your mind about committing daily
to giving your life and time and effort to glorifying the Lord. Let's continue.
As you know, every garden should
have the nutrients it needs to feed and nourish it. Thereís no doubt
about it, fertilizer is the best answer for a stronger healthier and
more fruitful garden.
Weeds rob your soil from all those valuable
nutrients that are necessary for a thriving garden, so we need to
replace the nutrients that all those pesky weeds have robbed so that
itís rich and fertile once again and you can begin to produce more
fruit for the Lord.
WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST STUDY WITH
WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST SUPPORT AND
WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST MESSAGE
program is a way of showing God your dedication to being free of your
problem. Itís also a way of goal setting. Youíve probably heard many
times that itís a proven fact that when you write down your goals on
paper, your chances of attaining those goals are tremendously higher
than if you donít.
As we discussed in the
Trinity study ... You are made up into three individual parts
yet are one entity. There is the Soul, the Spirit and the Body. Your
AIM HIGH project will help you to strengthen your mind, body, and
spirit. In doing so, itís like a preventive maintenance program to
avoid and resist new seeds from taking root and old problems from
resurfacing in your life.
STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND
Your mind (the soul) controls your body (flesh) and
your emotions (spirit), so strengthening your mind is a very important
exercise. Your mind (Soul) tells your body (flesh) and your emotions
(your spirit) to act and react to thoughts that your mind (Soul) has.
Sounds strange huh?
Well let me show you just how NORMAL it is.
Imagine if you will ... You are
having an absolutely SON-derful day and suddenly you get a call from a
friend who tells you that your friend of many years died. Your Mind
(Soul) hears this news through the "ears" and it enters the Mind
(Soul) ... You then THINK sad thoughts and immediately your emotions
(spirit) are affected and you FEEL different than you did 30 seconds
Your body (flesh) changes in that you can feel weak and tears
are created from your eyes. ALL this from one THOUGHT that entered
your mind. It is a natural procedure within humans. This procedure
within us works the same for all thoughts. Whether the thought be that
of anger, jealousy, lust, fear, doubt or pride ... Or good thoughts
such as love, understanding, forgiveness, faith and compassion ...
WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS WHAT YOU RECEIVE
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are
possible to him that believeth.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye
pray, believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them.
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith, and
doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the
fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou
removed, and be thou cast into the sea;
it shall be done.
THINK ABOUT THIS ... WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.
BUT ... What if we controlled those thoughts that enter our Mind
Would we not then be able to control our emotions (spirit) and our

knowledge of the TRUTH.
After removing the seeds within as we have
been performing and filling your mind with TRUTH, it will help you
discern good from bad seeds (thoughts).
Now, just hold on here a
minute ... Is this one of those new wave or scientific
Where did we get this
The answer is ...
We are told to ... Think GOOD thoughts.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever
things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are
just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if
there be any praise,
think on these things.
Paul is telling us that we should control our thoughts and THINK
on these good

The Bible CLEARLY reveals that we are to gain
control and strengthen our minds.
Be transformed by
Put on the new man.
And be not conformed to this world: but
be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will

Jesus Christ our Lord.
then with the mind I myself serve the law of God;
but with the flesh the law of sin.
Renew your mind.

mind; And that ye

which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Forget the past, think forward,
Brethren, I count not
myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are
behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be
be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this
Soooooooo, as you can see ... The Bible is clear.
We ARE commanded to renew our minds.
ANOTHER TRUTH IS THAT WE CAN GET A LEASH ON OUR
In the AIM HIGH project, you wonít be
strengthening your body physically, but instead, youíll be
strengthening the control your Mind (Soul) has over the body (flesh).
Remember that the mind (Soul) controls the body (Flesh), so youíll be
using your mind (Soul) to control your body (flesh) also.
STRENGTHEN YOUR SPIRIT
Again ... It is IMPORTANT for you to understand that
your spirit is the part of you that listens and obeys the things that
your mind (soul) tells it to feel.
Let me further elaborate on this
topic ... You have many different emotions. Happiness, sorrow,
anxiety, fear, excitement, love, anger, etc., etc. Your spirit holds
these emotions only if you THINK thoughts which produce said emotions
Your spirit reacts with these feelings when your mind (soul) tells your spirit that something is
sad as in the example given before, your spirit says ďgot itĒ and you
become grieved in your spirit. Your mind changes your spiritual condition. What a gift, huh?
Many people think that the spirit and the soul are the same thing, but the Bible provided us with the amazing truth. Your mind is the soul, and it controls your spirit. Your soul (mind) is like your control center for your feelings and emotions. Get a leash on those puppies.
Make sure you have read this study (If you have not already) as to fully understand this TRUTH before continuing down our path. It will prove to be vital to your new life's growth.
Your mind (Soul) and your spirit can cause physical
Tears, goose bumps, shaking, laughter as well as
All this just from a thought planted in your Mind
These all happen because your mind (Soul) told your spirit
something and it caused the physical reaction.
You can control your spirit by changing your
All you have to do, is send your spirit the signal for a
different emotion by thinking differently. BUT ... Your Mind (Soul)
has to believe it to be TRUTH.
It happens with you ... Or without you being aware
Have you ever been thinking of a problem and then
got busy with your daily agenda and all day long you felt this bad
feeling of doom, though the day was going pretty good? It is that your
Mind (Soul) did not resolve the earlier problem that you THOUGHT and your spirit is
crying out because it is reacting to the problem that you were thinking of
Even though you are not consciously aware of the
You may think that itís a difficult thing to do, to
control your emotions, by controlling your thoughts because theyíre
very strong, but with the AIM HIGH project, youíll be
strengthening your mind with TRUTH, and youíll find that TRUTH has a
way of changing a lot of things.
Later on down THE PATH youíll discover that the
HOLY SPIRIT will be your guide in helping you with
controlling your thoughts and your spirit.
Before we move ahead into the exciting explanation of the
SON-sational Aim High Project, let us have a little chat about ...
As you very well know, in any undertaking, there is
some measure of responsibility involved. If you're a student in
school, and you don't do the schoolwork or the homework, you begin to
have problems. You have to write things down, and read things and
repeatedly study things until they become ingrained in you, and then
after that, you no longer need your notes or your books to look them
What about practical life endeavors? If you have a checking account, you have to fill out a deposit or withdrawal slip each time you make a transaction, or you may count on a computer or smart phone for your record keeping. If you want to keep your records straight, and not run into problems, you have to keep current, and you have to keep records regularly. If you think about it, just about everything in your
life that you want to keep organized, requires documentation of one
kind or another in order to avoid problems. Even a small thing like keeping your grocery list current may not seem like much, but it is a very important responsibility.
This documentation isn't
mandatory, but without it, things get quite chaotic.
The same is true of music. If you were learning to
play the guitar, for example ... You will have to look at your sheet
music until you learn the notes, and you'll have to look at your
fingers until you become so familiar with each chord that you can play
them without looking. Then, once you memorize a song, you can play it
without looking at your sheet music OR your fingers.
Now, you can read through
your "Learn to Play the Guitar" book one time, and play each chord
once or twice, and say that you've done the work, but if you don't
practice regularly ...
You will never learn to play the guitar.
BUT ... If you DO practice and CHOOSE to get into
it, you WILL play guitar and will NOT need the "Learn to Play the Guitar" book
eventually because it is WITHIN you.
Why am I going through all this rigmarole?
rigmarole is documented in the dictionary.)
Because you're here for a
IF WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST, WE HAVE SKILLS DEEP WITHIN.
One of those reasons is because God has led you here,
and another reason is that other methods you have tried using to rid
your life of your problem, have not worked.
I do NOT want the enemy of your soul to discourage
Most rewarding things in life require responsibility. If you want to have good health, like it or not, you have to be responsible about what you consume. That pertains to your mental health as well as your physical health. If you want a nice home,
you have to clean it. If you want a nice car, you have to maintain it. If you want a nice garden ... You get where I'm going with this ... Freedom of problems requires responsibility.
Aim High project likewise requires responsibility. It works if you apply it, just like EVERY other worthwhile thing in
Most people get very defensive if anything looks like an endangerment to their free time ... However, the good news is ... The Aim High Program offers not one, but two different, very flexible options, so that you may choose to customize it to your schedule and adjust it to perform it at your own pace. Like exercise for the mind and spirit.
